The Daily Hunt for Food in Gaza

·1 min

For millions of hungry Gazans, finding food is a daily struggle. The ongoing war in Gaza has led to a high risk of famine and starvation, as food imports have been choked and agriculture destroyed. The entire population of Gaza now relies on limited humanitarian aid for sustenance. The north of Gaza has been particularly affected, with little aid reaching the region. UN agencies have suspended aid operations due to Israeli restrictions, security concerns, and poor road conditions. Families in Gaza are finding it increasingly difficult to find food, and many days they go without eating. Street markets have become a primary source for food, with damaged or closed food shops. Those who can afford it buy what little food is available, while others rely on aid kitchens. The situation is dire and shows no signs of improving.
